This is a nice sheet with a pleasant variety of aircraft. All of the planes shown are painted in three color grey scheme of FS 36118/36320/36375 that are the norm of new planes. The ANG has gone to a simpler two grey scheme, though it is unknown by this author whether this is the norm for repainted planes or not. Recommended kis is the Hasegawa F-16 family, though I'm sure that the markings will fit other kits in 1/48

First is the 555FS boss bird from the 31st FW at Aviano AB in Italy. This block 42 F-16C carries mission marks from Operation Allied Force. Reader Steve Chais wrote in:  "The 31FW does not operate the Block 42 F-16, they fly the Block 40 F-16 with the GE powerplant. "

An F-16D from the 524 FS/27th FW at Cannon AFB is next.

From the 13 FS/35 FW at Misawa, Japan is this WW coded block 50 F-16C.

Finally, from the Israeli AF is this F-16A of the Sandbird squadron.

A quite nice sheet for those of you who are into the F-16.
